    A day later, after it was introduced on 5/3/04, the so called
    "Fair and Flexible" Plans are not yet showing (as of 600 EDT 5/4/04)
    on the SprintPCS web site.

    I say "so-called" because there are some aspects that are not
    user-friendly

    - If you go over your plan by 1 minute it'll now cost you $2.50 rather
    than 50 cents.

    - You now only have 3 months to change your plan, otherwise
    just adding more minutes to your plan triggers a new 2 year agreement

    This is not "more flexibility" as the press release falsely states.

    00.html

    ======
    While the web site does not yet show the "Fair and Flexible" stuff other
    good changes are there:

    - If you add ReadyLink service by itself, without Vision, it's
    now $10/month, rather than $15

    - the $5/month for 7 PM Nights and Weekends unlimited no longer
    shows as a temporary plan, that you need to sign up for
    before some expiration date.

    ==========

    The 18 month rule is now in writing but doesn't mention requiring
    a Vision plan for a Vision phone (but then it doesn't mention that the
    rebate requires a new 2 year contract):

    "Sprint PCS New For YouSM Upgrade Program Existing customers are
    eligible for a mail-in rebate of up to $150 towards the purchase of a
    new phone, once their old phone has been activated on their account for
    18 months. "

    found via the Sprint PCS web site by navigating through Business

    It's a business only plan?

    The original press release (released on Monday) said they would start
    advertising it the following Monday.

    No, the Fair and Flexible Plan is not just for business. Their is
    simply no shared minutes available for the Corporate Liable plans.

    Thank you,

    Mark

    in the business section?

    I don't know, but I just picked up a Fair and Flexible brochure at the
    Best Buy in Victorville, California while drooling over the video phones...

    (for the record: that was this afternoon, 5/5/04.)

    It's considered a soft-launch right now. For a few more days. It's=20
    being offered on a reactive basis right now. There's supposed to be=20
    an advertising campaign to back the plan up very soon. Once that=20
    launches, I suspect, the plans will be proactively available.
